Creating Connectivity with Labels / Ports

This page explains how you can make an electrical connection within a single schematic sheet, or between one schematic sheet and another. For connection within the same schematic sheet you can use both a label and port. For connection between different schematic sheets only a port is available.

Creating Connectivity with Labels / Ports

Label Connectivity

A label is used to create connectivity to other labels with the same name, on the same schematic sheet. Only a port is available for connection between multiple sheets.

Port Connectivity

A port is available to connect a net from one schematic sheet to another, or within a single schematic sheet.

Concurrent Use of Label and Port

A label and port with different names can be placed on the same wire.

Creating Connectivity with Bus

Bus Format

The bus format consists of three elements: label identifier, label number and operator.

Description

Label Identifier A letter or letters that are added to the beginning of a label number. The connection of labels with the same label identifier is allowed.
Label Number A number that is added to the end of a label identifier.
Label Number Range Identified in the format “[<Starting Label Number>:<Ending Label Number>]”. The connection of label numbers within that range is allowed.
Operator Used to define multiple rules. An operator is described by “/”.

 

Bus Format Example

DA[00:20]/D/A Allows connection by wires with the net labels from DA00 to DA20, and wires with the net labels of D and A.

Example : Bundling a Set of Nets

To bundle multiple different nets and connect them between different sheets, each net needs to be delimited with “/” as port names.
